1 Peter 5

1 I am encouraging the elders the ones among you*, (the fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of the Christ, also the partner of the glory which is about to be revealed). 2 Shepherd the flock of God among you*, exercising the oversight, not by compulsion, but willfully, nor covetously, but eagerly; 3 nor like one lording it over his inheritances {Or: lots} , but by becoming examples to the flock. 4 And when* the Chief-Shepherd is made manifest, you* will be getting the unfading crown of glory.

5 Likewise, the younger ones, be subject to the elder ones. But all of you * be subject to one another, clothe yourself with humility, because' God resists the haughty, but is giving grace to the humble.' {Prov. 3: 34} 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the powerful hand of God, in order that he may exalt you* in time; 7 having tossed forth all your, your* anxiety upon him, because there is care concerning you* with him. 8 Be sober! Be watchful! Your* opponent, the devil, like a roaring lion, is walking around seeking whom he may swallow, 9 to whom you* are standing against, being solid in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are to be completed in the world by your, your* brotherhood. 10 But the God of all grace, who called you* to his everlasting glory in Christ Jesus, when* you* have suffered a small time, he himself may frame you* up, will establish, will strengthen and will found you * . 11 The glory and the dominion is to him, forevermore. Amen.

12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I count him, I have written to you* a few words, encouraging and testifying this to be the true grace of God in which you* are standing. 13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you *, and my son Mark greets you*. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love*.

Peace to all of you* who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

{NOTES: Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the' Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR. }
